Maybe with some new tenants the building management will begin to vent properly the food court on the lower level. The entire lobby, including the second level hall leading to the Business Journal, smells of Chinese food from 10am until after dark.

Southern Kansas City suffered big time in the housing collapse there are no jobs, no shops, no nothing and it hasn't improved at all in the years since, in fact its worse, crime is worse and quality of life sucks.

Kansas City, MO continues to bring in "NEW" jobs to the metro!

Law firm Littler Mendelson will bring 275 jobs to KC - Kansas City Business Journal

Quote:
"One of the nation's largest law firms is relocating 275 administrative jobs to Kansas City"
Quote:
"We looked at virtually every major U.S. city in the Central and Mountain time zones, as well as San Francisco"...
Quote:
"This is the second large law firm to move its administrative office to Kansas City during the past year. Sedgwick LLP moved above 100 administrative employees into the same building in early 2014"

This is great news! It would appear that KCMO is decently good at attracting businesses from other regions.

Sometimes I wonder if KCMO should just bid "good riddance" to every company that wants to take JoCo's bait. In fact, they might try encouraging it, of all things. That way, the PEAK program will run out of money as fast as possible, and KCMO can get right to work filling the vacant space left behind with companies that actually want to relocate to Kansas City.

You guys are obsessed with your jealousy toward Johnson County. Like it or not, businesses and people have moved away from the urban core. If there continue to be murders downtown (there have been several lately), I'm guessing things aren't going to move back to the urban core like you are hoping.

And then there was a murder in Shawnee the other day. So you might say - SEE! It happens in Johnson County too. Well, except the four people charged with murder in Shawnee are Kansas City, Missouri residents. They are all 18 or 19 years old. And more often than not, when there is a violent crime in Johnson County, the perpetrators are KCMO residents. So that's another reason that businesses and employees might want to be in the suburbs. Kansas City, Missouri has a crime problem.

Besides the murders, there were young people causing problems at Independence Center a few weeks ago. I guess those must be the same harmless kids that cause trouble on the Plaza and fire a weapon at the zoo - and murder someone in Shawnee?

So keep talking bad about Johnson County while ignoring the violent crime being committed in urban KCMO and in other parts of the metro by people from urban KCMO.

I get it your a aging boomer who lives in the suburbs. But why can't you just be happy about Kansas city's success?

None of this has anything to do with this topic. The post should be deleted. Care to discuss the topic of KCMO bringing new jobs to the metro?

It does indeed have something to do with the post I replied to and it has to do with jobs in KCMO. I can understand why you want it deleted, though. You'd rather not have the truth about KCMO posted.
